Tyus Kirby Denney

 Tyus Kirby Denney, 91, a native of Cullman and resident of Birmingham, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, March 6, 2013. He was a member of Plainview Baptist Church and a proud veteran of World War II where he served in the Pacific. His two great passions in life were fishing and beekeeping which he took up at age 12. He continued to fish well into his 80's and was still tending bees at his death. He was a member of the Alabama Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans and took great pride in being one of only two surviving sons of a Civil War Veteran in Alabama.  He was preceded in death by his parents Thomas Jefferson Denney and Dora Hill Denney;  his loving wife of 65 years Christine Overton  Denney;   brothers  Wiley  P.  Denney, Bernice Warren, Clifford Warren and Pierce Warren;  and sister Vivian Smith.  Tyus was survived by his daughters Rolline Sisson (Larry), Brynda Roper (Bob), Sonja Everett (Greg); grandchildren Brent Sisson (Delanda), Kelly Gillespie (David), Heather Holman (Clint), Christopher Sisson (Marsha), Ashley Donnelly (Sam), Chad Holt (Stacy)and John Nagy;  9 great grandchildren and one great-great grandchild.  He was a loving husband, father and grandfather.

The family would like to acknowledge and express gratitude to Dr. David Lemak, the Staff of Trinity Baptist Hospital and Brenda Heaton for their kindhearted care and especially to Reverend Mary Seale for her devoted friendship. Visitation will be Friday, March 8, 2013 from 6 until 8 p.m. at Ridout's Trussville Chapel.  Funeral service will be at 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 9, 2013 at Etha Baptist Church in Cullman, the body will lie in repose at the church one hour prior to service time.
